According to News Charm, a progressive site in Korea, Lee Jung-Hee, member of National Assembly, Democratic Labor Party announced that, “ There have been the TOD screens that were not made public.”
Lee Jung-Hee who is acting in the special committee on Cheonan ship, announced like that in the morning of May 28, receiving the report with the TOD (Thermal Observation Device) screening of the sinking process of the Cheonan ship from the concerned persons of the joint investigation committee members on the Cheonan ship. The TOD is the device that changes the peculiar thermal energy of an object into the electric signal/ screen signal, projects it into monitor and detects a moving object during day and night.
Lee Jung-Hee claimed that “Even though the concerned person of the NMD (National Ministry of Defense) said the Cheonan ship confirmed in the additional screen, is inferred that its stern and bow have already been separated each other, it was difficult to find the traces of shock by the torpedo attack or bubble jet [that have been claimed] to make half of the ship body, and the separation of stern and bow, in the screen.
Another progressive website, Voice of People, has the title that says: [Analysis of TOD] While the Stern and Bow Is Separated after One Second… Why After 32 Sec.?: 8 Seconds of the TOD Screen of Cheonan Ship, Which has Been Hidden by the Ministry of National Defense (MND) Is Compared to the ADD experiment [in 2004].
Here are the three photos in the site with captions (translated).
